The district council says it wants to keep its beaches clean and safe for everyone who uses them.
East Devon’s seasonal dog ban has come into force.
It covers all of the district council controlled beaches, including Seaton.
Dog owners, visitors and walkers are reminded to check on the council website at http://eastdevon.gov.uk/dogs/ if they are not sure where they can take their dog.
Cllr Tom Wright, EDDC’s environment spokesman said: “We want to keep our beaches clean and safe for everyone who uses them so even in the ‘dogs allowed’ areas dogs must be kept under control, close by, and on a lead if necessary.

“As a dog owner for many decades I understand that some people feel apprehensive when dogs are running free and the restrictions are so that everyone can enjoy our wonderful beaches.”
Dogs will be able to be walked freely again on the beaches after September 30.
